Today, it’s not enough to have energy-efficient windows. With the rising environmental and health issues in the country, it’s important to choose products that provide overall protection for your property, the environment, and your family’s health.
Apart from increasing comfort, enhancing curb appeal, and increasing energy savings, our windows in Philadelphia PA and other areas offer other benefits. One thing many customers don’t know about the products we install is that they also help improve indoor air quality.
Did you know that poor indoor air quality is one of the top health concerns in the country? This is according to the Environmental Protection Agency. As many of you spend most of your time at home, you are exposed to air pollutants, specifically volatile organic compounds (VOCs), released by various building materials through off-gassing. This is a process where certain solids emit gases through evaporation.
Constant exposure to VOCs may cause irritation to the throat, nose, and eyes. It may also result in headaches, nausea, and loss of coordination. Serious consequences of exposure to this type of toxin include damage to the central nervous system, kidney, and liver.
As part of our mission to provide quality products, Renewal by Andersen® and Andersen Corporation, our parent company, offer windows that lower VOC emissions. With Fibrex®, an innovative material we use for frames, we don’t have to paint or use preservative treatments for our windows, which is one of the reasons for VOC emissions at home. Through our technology, we have received the SCS (Scientific Certification Systems) Indoor Advantage Gold ™ certification. This is the most stringent standard for indoor air emission in the country.
Replacement windows that give the best value for your money will not only help improve the look of your home, make you comfortable, and let you save on utility expenses. They will also help ensure that you’re breathing cleaner, fresher air indoors.
